For the Love of a Horse

Charles just showed me his new film, Zoo, the Sundance contender about the local man who died after sex with a horse in 2005. It’s also about community, friendship, loss, and the blunt force of will that makes mankind the master of all beasts. Zoo is a documentary but, like Police Beat, it’s also sensual and gorgeous and otherworldly. It left my stomach and my brain both in small knots. I’m not a film fan (I dislike most movies; can’t sit through them), but you must trust me when I tell you that you can’t wait to see Zoo. It’s coming from ThinkFilm in Spring 2007. (And yes, there’s a few unforgettable seconds of horse-in-man footage.)

Well, I hadn't heard of this film, but *you* must trust *me* that a recommendation from someone who never watches films unless they're made by her friends and blandly asserts that she is "the master of all beasts" ensures I will be ignoring this one, along with the rest of the general public.

Man on horse action and I don't even have to buy a Zune? SWEET!
